“I have decided that visiting my grandmother under these oppressive conditions stands against everything I believe in–fighting against racism, oppression & injustice.”

Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) announced on Friday that she would not be traveling the state of Israel only hours after the Israeli government approved her special request to visit her family in the West Bank.

“My sity wanted to pick figs [with] me. I broke down reading this [and] worry every single day after I won for my family’s safety,” Tlaib said in a series of tweets. “My cousin was texting me which photo of [Omar] & I they should put on a welcoming poster when I heard the news. I couldn’t tell her.”

“When I won, it gave the Palestinian people hope that someone will finally speak the truth about the inhumane conditions,” she continued. “I can’t allow the State of Israel to take away that light by humiliating me [and] use my love for my sity to bow down to their oppressive [and] racist policies.”  More

Such outrage from Democrats and the MSM when Israel denied them entry. But it is okay for Dems to say the President can’t visit Dayton or El Paso‽
